This communal bank is made up of five members, all of whom work in commerce. The bank is currently represented by Aura Maritza who is the mother of five children. She is a very responsible and hardworking person. In the time she has worked with loans from Kiva and the Fundación FAPE she has demonstrated herself to be a person with very good payment habits.

She works selling and producing essences for perfumes. She also sells cosmetics and tupperware. She seeks a new loan to buy raw material to make perfumes, as well as cosmetics and tupperware. This will allow her to better stock her business.
